Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father…So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.@Matthew 10:29-31

Frederick A. Graves, 1899 (🔊 pdf nwc).

My Father has many dear children;
Will He ever forget to keep me?
He gave His own Son to redeem them,
And He cannot forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He gave His own Son to redeem me,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.

Our Father remembers the sparrows,
Their value and fall doth He see;
But dearer to Him are His children,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
But dearer to Him are His children,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.

The words of the Lord are so priceless,
How patient and watchful is He;
Though mother forget her own offspring,
Yet He’ll never forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
Though mother forget her own offspring,
Yet He’ll never forget to keep me.

I now will abide in His shadow,
Never restless nor fearful will be;
In the secret of His presence He’ll hide me,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
In the secret of His presence He’ll hide me,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.

O brother, why don’t you accept Him?
He offers salvation so free;
Repent and believe and obey Him,
And He’ll never forget to keep thee.
He’ll never forget to keep thee (keep thee),
He’ll never forget to keep thee (keep thee),
Repent and believe and obey Him,
And He’ll never forget to keep thee.
